I've been cutting lately with reasonable success, but I've recently been informed that my diet has a lack of EFA's (like Omega-3 and Omega-6).

Currently, my diet consists mostly of cottage cheese, tuna, whole grains (i.e. oatmeal), and my sources of fat are peanut butter and olive oil. I don't have access to supplementation such as fish oil or flax oil for a few more weeks.

How much of a problem does this pose for my cut? Will I still be able to reach reasonably low bodyfat (8-9%) without the inclusion of these EFA's? I understand the importance of fat in my diet, but at the moment I have limited access to different foods (working at a summer camp where food is served to me). As long as I keep the calories under maintainence, the protein high (at least 1g per lb bodyweight), and the lifting intense, can I still expect good results?
